Bird scooters come to Atlanta


It’s only been weeks since a new scooter ride-share company set its wheels down in Atlanta and the new transportation is already raising questions as early-adopters take to streets, sidewalks – and trails where they technically shouldn’t even be. Bird announced it had introduced its dockless electric scooters to Atlanta on May 3 – the first city in the southeast where the company has opened its doors. Since then, it’s already become a popular mode of transportation. “This lets me go to places I love going, like food spots, but I don’t get a taxi.,” said Usman Shahid, a Bird rider. In short, Bird lets riders use its smartphone app to find scooters parked near them. From there, a rider is charged $1 to start a ride plus 15 cents for each minute used.
